Last night on the Santa Fe Opry I played Neko Case's version OF the song "Rolling Stone."
That was a modest tribute to the late Karen Black, who died Aug. 8. Black, who portrayed a country singer named Connie White in Robert Altman's Nashville not only performed the song in the movie, she wrote the darn thing.
And yes, that's Vassar Clements on fiddle
Neko's version is on a tribute album of various alt-country types performing songs from the Nashville soundtrack.
I couldn't find footage of that performance in the movie, but here's a Youtube of that song, plus "Memphis," the other song she wrote and sang in Nashville.
